Gas Tax Increase Petition

The State of California is planning on adding automobile fuel to the list of items penalized under California's AB32 Cap and Trade scheme. Taking effect January 1 of next year, the tax/ penalty is expected to be between 14 to as high as 79 cents per gallon. I expect the latter, if not more.

That's even higher gas prices we'll be paying. Never mind I've heard whispers the feds are considering their own gas tax increase. Some Democrats in the state legislature are having second thoughts on the increase, realizing it's already hard enough to make ends meet in this state. Here's an online petition you can sign to help convince them to drop the proposal.

Addendum: Here's a web site I just found where you can add your name and contact info to join the Coaltion Against Higher Oil Taxes. I just added mine.

How about a 5% national consumption tax. 10-15% for luxury goods and hazardous materials.
